What do clients have to say?
Oak Valley Stables is a great place for those who want the full horse experience and want to really learn to ride. Miss Nora and her staff are AMAZING and riders learn not only to ride, but to respect and care for the animals and equipment used in riding. My son was transformed in his time spent at the stables. - Dawn Fontana
